Metallic Spray Painted Wreath

I’ve seen metallic looking wreaths popping up here and there in my radar lately, Target, Michael’s, the PB catalog, I love the look. It is different than anything I’ve seen before and I wanted to try and recreate it. I love how it updated my tired wreath!


I took a huge wreath I had gotten from freecycle last winter. I loved the size!


And while glitter, pine cones, berries, and fake snow can be good things (like all else, in moderation)…

this wreath looked like someone had smeared glittery, globby toothpaste all over and it was a HOT MESS.


I took the wreath, hung it in the garage, opened the windows, and let the spray paint FLY!


Did I not learn from this experience? Or from when I spray painted my feet? Why didn’t I move the weed wacker! Yikes! That could have been bad…

I used Krylon metallic spray paint in Nickel, $3 at Walmart, only one coat on both sides.


Eeee! I love the frosted look of the wreath! But it still needs something…

To add interest and texture, I took some pinecones Lily had picked up from our yard,


nestled them into the wreath here and there,


as well as some clustered ornaments I made with some mini ornaments from the dollar spot,

and a bow made from burlap scraps from my stash.


Now, this wreath looks fresh and frosty, nothing like the original!


I love it!

    This is so funny. I sprayed painted two small trees and a wreath this past weekend silver. My husband thought I was crazy and did not think it would work. But they turned out great! I plan on doing a post on it soon.

    It looks great… I am all about the budget-friendly wreaths, especially since they usually only survive for a year or two if the weather gets

    This is exactly what I have been thinking about doing. I've seen painted Christmas trees before and after seeing your results I think it's time for me to pull out the spray paint. Thanks.
